3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Erwin Van Moll @ Brewpub Van Moll. Hazy yellow color, some yeast residu in it, full sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, lightly yeast, a soft underlying fruityness. Taste lightly malts, yeast, again a subtle light underlying fruityness probably coming from the yeast, slightly alcohol and a slight hint of fruitpeel bitterness. Very balanced, smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Impressive brew, I must admit.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours slightly hazy, golden. Thin white head, lots of lacing. Faint, floral Jasmine aroma. Taste is bitter, with faint citrus. Finishes with a powerful, astringent flavor of Jasmine and soap. Light body, soft carbonation. Deceptively light for the 10% ABV, but overwhelmingly floral and lacking balance.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s about time I review this one! 750 ml 1 year old bottle! Golden straw color and massive sustained head! wow I smell a hoppy champain! Lemon/Citrus notes and ripe grapefruits. The better the beer is, the more speechless I get. Man THAT BALANCE! I may have a new beer in my top 5!
Floral hops are through the roof, a little sourness that joins the biterness and the fruityness. creamy finish. Great Stuff!!
